Episode 096: Pivoting Your Business Model During Uncertain Times with Aimee Mendez

Pivoting Your Business Model During Uncertain Times with Aimee Mendez
>

In today’s episode, I’m bringing on one of my past clients to talk about the online business wisdom that she has acquired through dance lessons. Now, this may sound crazy at first. Yet sometimes we stay open to things we learn outside of the game of online business, often we can find a surprising advantage. 

Our guest for today is Aimee Mendez. Amie is a professional dancer and a dance teacher who has competed and traveled all over the world. She’s taught all kinds of people how to dance, from somebody like me, who knows nothing about dancing, all the way to helping reality television stars. 

Amie has often been approached by other dance professionals and students for consulting and training. This is what has inspired her to create the Dance teachers Academy podcast, which is a who’s who of champion dancers and performers on my has taught over 250 different couples to prepare them for their wedding dance. And that’s why some of her colleagues have named her the queen of the wedding couple. 

But more importantly, she’s learned how to take her extensive knowledge of the dance industry, and use the internet to create a business that allows her to work from anywhere in the world.
